That’s exactly the price we tipped back in February when it was announced and it means the low-riding Gunner is their second-cheapest bike after the High Ball ($19,495). As a special introductory launch offer, the Victory Gunner is eligible for Victory’s free on-road costs campaign during June 2014.

The cut-down, solo-seat bobber is named after Hollywood actor Ronald Lee Ermey who played Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket, which earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He’s been featured in American TV advertising for the Victory for the few years.

The Victory Gunner is a no-nonsense grab for the youth market which is enchanted with simplicity, rather than chrome embellishments and hi-tech.

The Victory Gunner features “Suede Titanium” paint, white-letter high-profile tyres, blackened slash-cut exhausts, black beach bars, conventional forks, 24-spoke wheels, a low 635mm solo red seat and weighs in at a comparatively svelte 294kg. Like all Victory motorcycles, it’s powered by their Freedom 106 (1731cc) 50-degree V-twin engine a six-speed transmission and carbon fibre belt drive.

It looks a little like the Judge and has similar steering and frame geometry measurements, so it should handle as well. Even the tyre sizes (130/90-16; 140/90-16) are the same as the Judge.

The Victory Gunner is being released with a full ammunition box of accessories.
